    6.6 nicked and gone! Sucked into the drive but there's no feet and so it ends up being a tentative poke, enough to get the edge as the ball swings away and Saha takes this right in front of his face. The bottom hand came off the grip as well as he went for it. Bangladesh in early trouble 12/2
    5.6 edged and taken! Jabs at this length ball with hard hands and it flies to third slip where the vice-captain takes a good catch. The polite word from the umpire made Umesh bowl this from wide of the crease, so he was able to create that natural angle across, Imrul pushed at it and has all the time in the world now to sit and analyse where he went wrong. 12/1
    37.1 misjudgment has cost Mominul big time! It's the slider from around the wicket. Drifts back in a long way, Mominul leaves thinking this will turn but it doesn't and crashes into the off stump. A wicket well-deserved for Ashwin and the skipper's gone. Ashwin's 250th Test wicket at home 99/4
    17.6 full on middle stump, and the batsman comes forward to defend, but the ball swings away late and hits his pad instead. Shami appeals and the umpire is swift in raising his finger. Mithun chats with Mominul but chooses not to review. Bangladesh are now in trouble 31/3
    53.5 swinging in! Full, outside off but searing inwards. Shami bowled this from slightly wide of the crease and the ball coming in has done the trick. Mushfiqur tried to cut it towards third man, but is too late into the shot. By the time he brings the bat down, his off stump is already on the floor. 140/6
    45.1 so what if you can't take catches? I'll get them bowled' , or so Ashwin seems to say as he's pumped! Mahmudullah plays a very, very poor stroke. Goes way across to sweep and misses a straight delivery that crashes into the stumps. 115/5
    54.1 edged and Kohli makes no mistake as he dives forward to take a good, low catch at slip. Liton can't do much damage. Beauty, nice and full from Ishant, drew him forward, got it to nip away a bit and the skipper did the rest. It's a team hat-trick 140/8
    53.6 Shami strikes again! Miraz is looking at the non-striker, asking whether he should review, but Liton has turned his back to him. Full, on off and before Miraz can bring his bat down, the ball has struck his front leg. Tea break, with Shami on a hat-trick Just by the way, Mehidy should've reviewed though.... because replays show that the ball would've missed leg stump 140/7
    56.4 is he out? Yes, he is. You don't escape by taking on Jadeja's arm twice! This is a short ball on middle and leg, he tucks this past square leg, takes the run, hesitates before eventually looking to get the second only to see Jadeja fire a throw to Saha after covering good ground from deep fine leg. Taijul is caught trying to put in a desperate dive when Saha breaks the bails 148/9
    not out
    58.3 the off stump has been cleaned up by a banana swinger from Umesh! This one started on middle, swerved away late to square him up and whizz past the outside edge to flatten the off pole. 150/10

    107.3 he's gone! Caught at deep midwicket going for the sweep. This was struck really, really well but there was a man right at the boundary and he took an excellent catch. Indore stands up to applaud a great knock 432/5
    7.2 edged and gone! Rohit goes for an expansive drive, a hint of late deviation means this one just nicks through to the keeper. Didn't lean into the drive as he tried to put that away. 14/1
    29.5 taken by Mehidy's substitute! Full, outside off, and he can't resist the drive. Ball moves away slightly, and takes his outside edge. Saif, at a wide-ish fourth slip, dives to his left to pocket a difficult catch 105/2
    31.5 appeal for lbw but not given! Will Bangladesh review? The keeper says in Bengali, 'not sure about impact', but Mominul reviews anyway. Big moment. Replays show that this length ball pitched outside off but angled in sharply. Hits his back leg as he misses the defense... and the ball is crashing into leg stump! Three reds and Kohli out for a duck. 119/3
    85.4 against the run of play! Length ball, outside off, and Rahane bends his knees to cut. Slapped over the infield but Taijul's lurking at deep point. Takes a couple of steps forward and pockets the catch in the deep. That's four for Jayed! Rahane out after an excellent innings 309/4
    not out
    110.5 Ebadot does a Cottrell! Length ball, angling in, and tries to muscle it leg-side. Through him, and pegs leg stump back. Brings out the salute to send Saha back 454/6

    6.6 goes through his defences. Length ball from around the wicket, keeps coming in after landing. Shadman looks to defend but his feet are rooted. Ends up leaving enough gap between the bat and the pad for the ball to sneak in and hit the top of the middle and leg stump 16/2
    5.1 bowled 'im. Umesh finally gets it right. Both line and length. It was fuller and just around off. Curves in in the air and moves in off the seam as well. Kayes went for the drive but managed only an inside edge. The ball clatters into the leg stump, India have the first wicket 10/1
    12.5 Huge appeal for lbw as Mominul is rapped on the pad as Shami brings it back from around the stumps, given not out and Kohli has reviewed. The leg stump was visible at the point of impact, which suggests he had shuffled a long way. Hawkeye confirms the ball would've smashed leg stump so Rod Tucker has to change his decision. 37/3
    14.1 skiddy bouncer which Mithun looks to take on, but can only get it high on the bat and Agarwal takes an absolute dolly at midwicket. Bangladesh folding rapidly. 44/4
    67.5 brilliant catch from Pujara. A touch fuller around off, Mushfiqur looks to go over mid-off, fails to middle. Pujara runs sideways and behind from mid-off, keeping his eyes on the ball all the time and takes it over his right shoulder 208/9
    26.3 and Rohit makes no mistake this time. Was a length ball outside off, just leaving the batsman who pokes at it and gets a healthy edge to second slip. Half the Bangladesh side are back in the pavilion 72/5
    39.2 steps out to hit over the top, can't get the elevation and Ashwin takes a smart return catch. Mind you, this was hit hard and was travelling but Ashwin instinctively moved to his left and took it right besides his face. A flourishing partnership has been broken just as Bangladesh were beginning to feel a lot better. 135/6
    54.5 bowled 'im! India get a wicket in the first over after tea. Was a short of the length ball around off, extra bounce there for Umesh. Mehidy gets on his toes and looks to defend but it keeps coming in with the angle to hit the forearm and ricochets on to the bails 194/7
    66.3 short one does the trick. Shami has his fourth. Was a bouncer aimed at the head. Taijul fends at it, the ball takes the shoulder of the bat and lobs behind the stumps. Saha takes a couple of steps forward and pouches it easily 208/8
    not out
    69.2 and India take 1-0 lead in the series. A length ball around off, Ebadot comes down the track and looks to smash it out of Indore, but ends up skying it towards long-on where Umesh settles under it and takes it comfortably before tumbling to his left 213/10
